The SGM-250P Professional Shotgun Microphone was designed for video and filmmaking professionals to deliver broadcast quality sound at a low budget price. Boasting the same level of high quality construction and sound performance as the SGM-250 model, the SMG-250P is a phantom powered only model, offering an even more affordable solution for those who do not require a battery power option in their microphone. Azden has set a new level in quality and performance with the SGM-250 and SGM-250P: A completely redesigned microphone element drastically improves sensitivity, frequency response and signal to noise ratio. The all metal-alloy case provides rugged durability and strong resistance to RF. The microphone’s custom designed, slotted, acoustic barrel exhibits excellent super-cardioid directionality and side noise rejection. The SGM-250P also comes equipped with an easily accessible low-cut filter switch on the body of the microphone. Set at 160Hz with a 3dB/octave roll off, the low-cut filter is designed to provide a smoother and more pronounced reduction in low frequencies, handy for combating noisy environments and proximity effect. Measuring 200mm in length (about 8 inches) the SGM-250P is easily kept out of frame in boom pole applications and is suitable for almost any filming situation. The SGM-250P comes with a leatherette, zipper carry pouch and a shock-absorbing mic clip with shoe mount.

About the Book, "Sound Design Theory and Practice"

Sound Design Theory and Practice:
Working with Sound
1st Edition
By Leo Murray

206 pages | 29 B/W Illus.
Paperback: 9781138125414
Publisher: Routledge


Sound Design Theory and Practice is a comprehensive and accessible guide to the concepts which underpin the creative decisions that inform the creation of sound design.

A fundamental problem facing anyone wishing to practice, study, teach or research about sound is the lack of a theoretical language to describe the way sound is used and a comprehensive and rigorous overarching framework that describes all forms of sound. With the recent growth of interest in sound studies, there is an urgent need to provide scholarly resources that can be used to inform both the practice and analysis of sound. Using a range of examples from classic and contemporary cinema, television and games this book provides a thorough theoretical foundation for the artistic practice of sound design, which is too frequently seen as a ‘technical’ or secondary part of the production process.

Engaging with practices in film, television and other digital media, Sound Design Theory and Practice provides a set of tools for systematic analysis of sound for both practitioners and scholars.

About StudentFilmmakers Magazine

Each edition of StudentFilmmakers Magazine addresses the needs of the five distinct phases of film and video making – development, pre-production, production, post production, and distribution.

“Your magazine [StudentFilmmakers Magazine] has some very high-end stuff, and it’s good people, and I’m really impressed. I think that the quality of writers is phenomenal. It might be over the heads of some of your readers, but for others, it is a good resource.” ~Ron Dexter, ASC

“It would have been wonderful if I had a magazine such as the StudentFilmmakers magazine available to me when I first started dreaming about becoming a cinematographer. It would have helped greatly to open up and help me understand the world of filmmaking and how to become part of it.”
~Andrew Laszlo, ASC
